I agree Judy, its a good book about the Lyons business, but Peter Birds
genealogy and family history leaves a lot to be desired. On this I can
only speak for my side of this family - the Solomons/Sloman/Salmon
He has Aaron Solomons (Barnett's father) changing his surname from
Solomons to Sloman on his second marriage in 1834 to Sarah Cohen. But
this is not so, Aaron does not change his surname until sometime
between the years of 1851 and 1857. He and his family appear as
Solomons on the 1841 and 1851 census. His two remaining daughters:
Rebecca and Sophia marry in 1858 and 1857 respectively, under the
surname of Sloman with father's surname as Sloman.
He has Aaron Solomons/Slomans death as being in 1887. Once again this
is not so, Aaron Sloman dies on the 6th December 1877 at his son Moss
Sloman's home at Calvert Street Shoreditch, age 89 years, cause of
death: "Aploxexy" [a 'stroke' in laymans terms].
Aaron Sloman had been living with his younger son Moss since the time
of the 1871 census, where he appears, 'badly/poorly' enumerated, as
"Anna Slamin" Visitor Widow age 76 (age placed in female column) born
City of London [blind old age]. On the relation section of this
census, the word Visitor has been overwritten over what appears to be a
capital F (for father?).
I suppose all of this means, that we, as researchers of our genealogies
must be rigorous and have, where ever possible, documentation to back
up our claims.
Sorry I am catching Sherry's disease : ) am ranting : )
